In 2015-16, 39 Highline parents, students and community members spent 10 months studying and deliberating about the need to improve or replace schools in Highline. The result was a long-range facilities plan and a recommendation for a bond to fund new school construction.
The school board reviewed the CFAC recommendations and voted to place a bond measure on the November 2016 ballot with all CFAC recommendations. 67% of voters approved these recommendations in November 2016 as part of a school bond package.
CFAC’s long-range plan laid out three phases of improvements over 15 to 18 years. Each phase would require a voter-approved bond to fund construction.
